Leander Paes and Lukas Dlouhy's chance of reaching the semi-finals of Tennis Masters Cup went up in smoke after they succumbed to their second successive defeat in the season-ending $4,45,000 ATP event.

The sixth-seeded Indo-Czech pair lost their Gold group league match 6-7 (2), 3-6 to Polish duo Mariusz Fyrstenberg and Marcin Matkowski.

Only the top two teams of Red and Gold groups will make the semi-final stage.

Paes and Dlouhy had plenty of chances in the first set but squandered all three breakpoints and eventually handed the lead to their opponents after losing the tie-break.

In the second, they dropped serve thrice and that was enough for the players from Poland to win the match.
